My dearest and beloved friend

How wonderful Your ways;

How sweet and kind Your fellowship

Which fulfils my living days.

The manner of Your touch divine

It radiates my soul;

Your warm and gentle smile

My life’s in Your control.

A sincere heart is Yours so rare

Your goodness is a gem;

We place our entire faith in You

As we touch Your garment’s hem.

As You wipe all our impurities

God’s handiwork is done;

You’re our best and fairest friend

You’re Jesus, God’s own Son.

“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”  John 15:15
